USS Iowa (BB-61) is the lead ship of her class of battleship and the fourth in the United States Navy to be named after the state of Iowa.

Tourists on the deck. One man photographed the ship. A woman was busy with her phone. And a family seemed more interested in waving to the people on the cruise ship going past.
